However, that's not all. You can take in several events in Cairns, especially this October.
Enjoy These Events
The famed Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics World Heritage Rainforest are in the Cairns region, but the city of Cairns itself is also a must-visit with many attractions and events. Here are a few you may catch on your trip.
Shine On Gimuy
October 5 - 15
Shine On Gimuy, a significant new First Nations event, will bring a beautiful art display, including vibrant lightwork, to the Cairns waterfront under the direction of Indigenous Creative and Cultural Guides.
In 60,000 years of history, science, tradition, and undiscovered stories, Shine On Gimuy will be a multi-arts event that enlists the streets with light displays, soundscapes, art installations, scheduled speeches, and musical performances. As part of the celebrations, the Salt House venue will also hold ticketed live music performances and speaking engagements from October 5 through 8.
Great Barrier Reef Ocean Swim Series
Would you like to participate in a Great Barrier Reef Ocean Swim Series? Experience a full day on the reef with Sunlover, which includes presentations, a semi-submarine tour, lunch, merchandise packages, photographs, briefings, a warm-up, the race, and drinks.
Every swimmer must be a competitive swimmer and be able to swim the distances entered efficiently. Note that the 3km and 5km swims and the relay do not allow buoyancy or swimming aids such as fins, snorkels, or pull buoys. These swimming aids are permitted during the 1-kilometre Swim the Reef event.

October 5 is the Radical Reels Tour 2023. This year's tour promises to make your heart race while you sit in the safety and security of the theatre.
